Health and Fitness Online

As you know from reading other posts on this blog, health and fitness is the most important part of personal preparedness. The basics of health and fitness are pretty straight forward--exercise more and eat healthy food. Of course it is not always that simple. Working exercise into a hectic schedule is always a challenge and eating healthy food is easier said than done. I would hazard a guess that 75% of the food sold in supermarkets today is patently unhealthy. To get a grip on your health and fitness, check out the links below and follow these simple rules:

  1. Exercise for an hour every day (work in strength, cardio and flexibility exercises)
  2. Eat reasonable portions of fruits, vegetables, grains and protein while laying off the junk food.
  3. Reduce stress.
  4. Sleep eight full hours every night.
  5. Drink only water as much as possible (skip the coffee, cola, alcohol, and other not-so-good-for-you drinks)

  1. Another link you may want to consider is The emphasis is upon building the type of strength and fitness that one would need to use a in real life situation. This is one of the problems with exercise, many people do not get a good return on the time they invest in exercise because they do not have a real plan.
